Places to see
Feel inspired by what our city of contrast has to offer you.
Take a trip down to The Quays to experience inspiring art and architecture, top sport action and theatre shows or relax and unwind with a canal cruise down the historic Bridgewater Canal. Whatever your tastes, there's something for everyone in Salford.
The picturesque village of Worsley is perfect for a canal-side walk and something to eat in one of the fine restaurants. The village is a stark contrast to state-of-the-art MediaCityUK, the UK's first, purpose built hub for the creative and digital industries and home to BBC North and, soon enough, ITV. The Quays is a haven of waterside bars, restaurants and even a chance to take to the water yourself should you wish to.
Discover the very same pub where Marx and Engels debated about society on Chapel Street, which is also home to Salford Museum and Art Gallery, the Working Class Movement Library and the UK's first public park.
Lending libraries, street lights, 5 star hotels...discover what else Salford had first!
